After graduating, Steve started his career in a school in London. During the seven years that he worked in the UK, he held a range of coordinator positions, including PE, ICT and Science. After being a year leader for two years in his previous school, he took the decision to explore another part of the world and to try teaching in an international setting.
When the opportunity to work in Singapore came up, Steve jumped at the chance, as it was a place he had always wanted to visit. The staff, parents and children made the transition very easy and he is very happy to be part of the Dover Court community.
Steve has taught across Key Stage 1 and 2 and this year has taken on the responsibility of Year 2 leader. This is a role he is looking forward to as it means he will have more involvement with other children in the year group, beyond his own class.
Steve has a particular interest in teaching Maths after finding it difficult himself as a child. Understanding what children are finding tricky themselves is the first step to helping them to overcome their difficulties. Steve also enjoys utilising the new technologies available to maximise participation and engagement in his lessons. It also adds an extra audience for the children and allows them to think in a wider context.
